    Both are good changes. I was only getting that Deadpool token every other day because I would forget when I used him last.

    Awesome extra 'details', and looking forward to what "Puzzle Ops" is.  Anything new is always welcome, to shake things up.

    Let me help you write your changelog:

    - UI changes for AP flyout bar (uses dark cosmic background)
    - picking nodes no longer locks the circle with an animation but opens the node details directly, with a fade-in animation
    - node details zooms in character pictures from left/right/top
    - more zoom in/out UI slowdowns, uhm, I mean animations for the battle screen TU/Boost popup

    I'm guessing Honey Lemon is the next character. Maybe we're getting the Big Hero 6 team?

    I can’t wait to add levels to be added to the train x powers.
    Also I too want to wonder what the Puzzle feature is

    Seems we have come and gone and R127 has not appeared for Android? Assume it will toddle along at some point today.

    Android players usually get the update late. I wonder if it has to do with Google's end.

    Not normally this late! But it does seem to have gotten worst the last few releases and yes quite possibly Google.
